I feel the same way about FOTD.

Amen to that. FOTD became a bathroom break for me after they slowed it down.

Oh, no, no, no. :) just can't let this pass. I feel just the opposite - I could take or leave the fast versions of FotD, the slower ones are when it became a real song.

You mean "a real BORING song", right? ;)

Actually, I should be clear that the fast versions were way before my time.

To each his own :)
I don't think I ever heard TLEO live.

When I was going to shows I was fine with the slow TLEO. Just doesn't compare favorably to the faster versions in my opinion.

FOTD- well, I guess I enjoyed the slow version once: at my first show. But then, I thought EVERYTHING was awesome that night, including the Day Job encore.

I like both personally. Honestly I'm not sure if any version beats the studio version, the acoustic interplay and Jerry's singing are just fantastic. But have you ever heard this "fast" FOTD ring? might convert you:

Yes, that one's very nice! Might need to listen to the whole show.

I'm with you on this one Ringo. And Jerry's solos are so much better on the slower versions.
